Watermelon 🍉 🍉🍉🍉 ice pops with hemp seeds🍉🍉🍉🍉
I’ve been making ice pops all summer for my kids. 👦👦👦They’re a fun, easy way to beat the heat, but store bought ones tend to be full of sugar, artificial colours and flavours, 🤢and absolutely zero nutritional value.😵 That’s why I love making homemade ice pops- I get to control what goes into them, and what stays out. They have only have two ingredients- watermelon, and hemp seeds! That’s right, two ingredients! They taste incredible, my kids love ❤️ them, and they are so easy to make! ⭐️⭐️⭐️These pops come together really quickly. Just cut up a watermelon, whiz it through the blender or food processor until smooth, and pour all that pink goodness into ice pop molds. To add a bit more nutritional value, as well as a little presentational panache, I decorated the bottom of my pops with hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are full of good fat, protein, and a whole bunch of trace minerals such as zinc, copper, iron and manganese. They’re a great way to add some replenishment to your body after a long day running around in the sun ☀️ which I don't see very often in London 😂. Ingredients:
1 Watermelon, cubed
½ cup Hemp seeds
Cut a ripe watermelon into cubes, and puree in a blender or food processor until smooth (don’t worry about seeds- a watermelon seed or two never hurt anyone!)
Transfer the pureed fruit into ice pop moulds, and freeze for 2 hours, until they begin to solidify. Take the molds out of the freezer, and sprinkle some hemp seeds along the base of the pops, around the stick. Add a small amount of water just to ensure the hemp seeds stick to the pops.
Return the pops to the freezer for another 3 hours, until fully frozen.
To unmold, run some hot water over the molds until the pops have loosened slightly. Pop out, and serve immediately!#watermelonicepops#icepops#sugarfreeicepops#dairyfreeicepops#vegan#veganicepops#plantbased#hempseeds#healthykids#veganchef#wholefoods#plantbased#vegancommunity#veganism#nutrition#sugarfreekids#letscookvegan#bestofvegan
